    Summary

    Joe Bibby was brought up in Richmond Hill, Accrington. His father, a local millwright, died when he was young and his mother, who came from Oswaldtwistle, had to bring up the family alone. He was signed by the Rovers from local football and was thrust into the team when Fred Duckworth was injured but after a promising start he struggled. Although naturally a right back he found it easier on the opposite side but his hopes of a long career disappeared when Tom Wylie was signed. He spent most of his life in Accrington and was living in Belfield Road when he died in the local hospital.
